    Welcome, and unfortunately, it is NOT compatible with RB

    No, and I'll tell you why.

    The Rock Band guitar is USB based, whereas the Guitar Hero remote acts as an add on to the Wii Remote. The Wii sees these as two separate things.

    Hey Wii Owners:

    Join the crowd! We PS3 owners have dealt with instrument incompatability since launch. It seems the only console where instruments are compatable is the 360, because of a standard Microsoft requires.

    At least you can go buy a stand alone guitar if you wish. We had to wait months before even getting an opportunity to play as a full band.

    So, complain to Nintendo and/or Sony for not requiring open standards on controllers, and join us in collectively giving Activision the middle finger for continuing to refuse to allow instrument compatability between games!!

    Actually, in this case because the GH guitars use the Wiimote, EA/HMX could have designed their guitar to do the same (and thus compatibile) but they chose not to.
